Default Does anyone remember these sodas as a kid?

First diet soda: No-cal my grandmother drank this in the 70's she was diabetic.

Hammer soda: My grandparents had this delivered to their house. Flavors were: orange, lemon lime, cream, root beer, cola and black cherry.

Manhattan special coffee soda, still made today. I never had it but I hear it's good.

Royal crown cola

C&C cola

Tab: still sold today

Mello yello

If there any others I left out let me know. I am sure in other parts of the USA their are many other varieties of soda or pop that I never heard of.

Horrible. They thought they'd be a lower priced alternative to Coke.

Isn't that RC cola? I'm pretty sure it is. It's still sold today, I buy it for southern family members that come for visits. I don't personally care for it, though. As a kid I drank a lot of grape and orange "ne-hi" soda, I think it was called. Probably nehi. That and good old Dr. Pepper which is still around.

I remember RC, Tab, and Mellow Yellow of the ones you mentioned.

Another that comes to mind, besides good ol cream soda (yum), is Fanta. Fanta might be by the same people who made Shasta - but marketed in different parts of the country.

How about Pop Shop Pop? We would get a 24 pack of bottles in lots of flavors, then bring back the bottles and get another 24 pack the next time. They came in big plastic crates. I loved that stuff.

The town I grew up in had its own bottling works, Star and Crecent, and they distributed bottles of pop locally, which were extremely popular, because (like Nehi) they had an ambitious number of different flavors, probably about 20. It was in the midwest, so there was no Dr. Pepper, that's something I looked forward to as the highlight of our family's trips to the south. Besides Star & Crescent, there were Bubble Up and Squirt, in addition to the well-known nationals. Orange Crush came in bottles, but was non-carbonated, just a orangey sugared drink, a little better than Kool Aid.

Several root beers were pretty popular. Dad's was still just a regional out of Chicago then, and Milwaukee has Grandpa Grafs, which is still available in Wisconsin. I don't think A&W was in bottles yet, but Hires was. The A&W stand was the only drive-in in town.

I drank Bubble Up and Shasta (cherry cola!), along with Dad's root beer.

Every once in awhile I'll see Faygo on the shelves, but I haven't seen the chocolate cream flavor in ages. Faygo's black cherry, Frosh and 60/40 flavors were my favorites, too.
